LeBron James Headshot

James (eye) scored 24 points (10-21 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, eight assists and a block in 41 minutes during Saturday's 127-115 loss to the Wizards.

He began the game wearing goggles to protect his eye after suffering a scratched cornea Friday, but after taking a couple of shots he ditched them and proceeded to have a very LeBron-like night. James has gotten a couple games off to rest this month, so expect the 32-year-old to be in the lineup and producing at his usual elite level for the rest of the regular season as the Cavs try to keep hold of the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
2:30 am (EST)
Kyrie Irving Headshot

Irving scored 23 points (8-23 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding four assists, two rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 127-115 loss to the Wizards.

The point guard has now scored at least 20 points in 22 straight starts, dating back to Feb. 6. After getting a couple days off this month to rest, expect Irving to be pedal to the metal for the rest of the regular season as the Cavs try to maintain their spot atop the Eastern Conference.
2:26 am (EST)
Bradley Beal Headshot

Beal scored 27 points (9-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT) while adding six assists and four rebounds in 43 minutes during Saturday's 127-115 win over the Cavaliers.

He hasn't scored fewer than 18 points in a game since Feb. 4, a stretch of 23 straight contests. Beal continues to enjoy a career year alongside John Wall in the Wizards' backcourt, and the duo have now led the team to within 2.5 games of Cleveland atop the Eastern Conference standings.
2:21 am (EST)
John Wall Headshot

Wall scored 37 points (14-21 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding 11 assists, four rebounds, two steals and a block in 37 minutes during Saturday's 127-115 win over the Cavaliers.

In a potential Eastern Conference Final preview against the Cavs, Wall was in top form, recording his ninth double-double in March and 48th of the season. The 26-year-old remains on pace for career highs in points, assists and steals per game, as well as made and attempted free throws.
2:17 am (EST)
DeMar DeRozan Headshot

DeRozan collected 18 points (8-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block across 37 minutes during Saturday's 94-86 victory over the Mavericks.

After erupting for back-to-back 40-point outings, DeRozan finished with a modest 18 points, though contributed six assists, surpassing his season average of 3.8 dimes per game. The 27-year-old swingman's game is largely reliant on getting to the charity stripe, and part of his subpar scoring performance is likely a result of shooting just two free throws. Serge Ibaka's return from a one game suspension also probably took some pressure off DeRozan to be the Raptors' clear main source of offense. Overall, his numbers in Kyle Lowry's (wrist) absence have been nearly identical to those before his injury, likely surprising most fantasy owners who expected a significant jump in production.
12:51 am (EST)
Derrick Rose Headshot

Rose (foot) returned to the floor and posted 24 points (10-22 FG, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and five assists across 36 minutes during a 106-98 loss to the Spurs on Saturday.

Rose looked pretty good in his return from a one-game absence, as he exceeded the 20-point mark for the fourth time so far this month. The 22 field goal attempts marked his highest total since Jan. 21 as he benefited from Carmelo Anthony's (knee) absence. Barring injuries, Rose is a good addition for owners seeking a combination of points, rebounds and assists to close out the season.
12:44 am (EST)
Mindaugas Kuzminskas Headshot

Kuzminskas totaled 19 points (8-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two assists and one rebound across 36 minutes during a 106-98 loss to the Spurs on Saturday.

Kuzminskas drew another start with Carmelo Anthony (knee) sidelined and took advantage by matching his season high with 19 points. The Knicks have no reason to rush Anthony back, so Kuzminskas could be a decent source of points and three-pointers if Anthony is held out longer.
12:44 am (EST)
Willy Hernangomez Headshot

Hernangomez totaled 24 points (11-16 FG, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 36 minutes during a 106-98 loss to the Spurs on Saturday.

Hernangomez' 24 points were a season high and he added 13 boards in the process to mark his best outing of the season. The 16 field goal attempts were a season high and the 36 minutes matched a season high as he benefited from Carmelo Anthony's (knee) absence. Hernangomez is a good source of points and rebounds to close out the season.
12:43 am (EST)
Pau Gasol Headshot

Gasol produced 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 26 minutes during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday.

Gasol picked up his second double-double so far this month in an excellent all-around performance. It was a nice bounce back game for him after the nine-point outing Thursday. Gasol isn't receiving an abundance of minutes right now as he's coming off the bench, but he was still able to get off 15 field goal attempts, which marked his highest total since Dec. 2.
12:43 am (EST)
Cory Joseph Headshot

Joseph finished with eight points (4-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), seven rebounds and five assists across 36 minutes during Saturday's 94-86 victory over the Mavericks.

Joseph got back on track setting up his teammates Saturday by dishing five dimes, as he had only totaled three assists over the past two outings. Over the past seven games, the 25-year-old out of Texas is averaging 10.3 points on 45.3 percent shooting, 4.0 assists and 3.1 rebounds across 31.0 minutes per game. While he's maybe not performed as well as fantasy owners had hoped since filling in for Kyle Lowry (wrist), Joseph still provides a solid option on the waiver wire as a point guard with a consistent 30-minute workload on a team competing for playoff seeding.
